If the power steering is tight and does not loosen up,i would say the power steering pump is locked up.With the engine not running ,remove the drive belt from the engine.Try and turn the power steering pulley with your hand.It should be easy to turn,turn it 4 or 5 times all the way around.If you can not move the pulley,or it stops,or gets tight turning it all the way around,then it is a bad power steering pump.This is something you will want a mechanic to do.If I can help,let me know.

Power Steering


Yes your absolutly right.
I have a 2006 Cobalt and my power steering completly failed. And this isn't a cheap fix. A quote of over $700 for a steering column replacement because these cars run electronic steering. Unless your under warrenty start searching salvage yards for working steering columns.

On my display "POWER STEERING" warning flashes then stays. When this happens my car will **** as if it is about to die. Could it be a transmission problem or a cpu problem?


Not familiar with a "power steering" warning.

I think this is similar to a oil pressure light coming on. What you are seeing is that the car is trying to stall, so the loss of power causes the power steering pump pressure to drop, and thus the warning.

Need to understand the underlying issues:

(1) Since you start with a power steering warning, must ask, are you making a short turn when this occurs?
(2) If not turning, then need to understand what you are doing when car tries to stall: Driving at highway speeds, idle, car hot/cold?

Could be a CPU problem, less likely a transmission problem, but on a 2005, should be getting a check engine light.

2005 Chevy Cobalt- power steering message, check engine light on-


I too had this problem, and it was finally resolved after tracing the wires from the BCM to the steering column. A few of the wires needed to be repaired and repositioned.

Power steering goes out


YOU HAVE AN ELECTRIC POWER STEERING SYSTEM. YOUR POWER STEERING CONTROL MODULE IS THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE. SCAN THE SYSTEM FOR CODES AND GO FROM THERE.

2005 chev cobalt will not shift out of 'park' position.


I have a 05 cobalt. One thing you have to make sure is that your pressing the brake while shifting out of park. As far as the wheels not turning while car is off, Completly normal. Reason why, because your power steering pump is not working while the car isnt running.
